You can’t target LGBT people like they are the source of Ghana’s sexual problems – Prof Prempeh fumes


Executive Director of the Ghana Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), Professor Henry Kwasi Prempeh, has expressed his utter disgust at the treatment being meted out to members of the LGBTQI+ community. According to him, there are other bigger sexual offences that ought to be dealt with rather than targeting homosexuals. He believes that it will be “hypocrisy” on the part of the country to make activities of the LGBTI community the focal point in addressing sexual problems in the country. “If you want to protect children, there are, at certain times on radio and TV that you cannot broadcast certain shows to children. The idea here is that we don’t want materials with sexual content to be exposed to children. It doesn’t matter whether it is heterosexual or homosexual.
